Y'know, I want to see a Cassian Andor or K-2SO that converts into a U-Wing.

Also, does Vader's chest look... off to anyone else? I can't put my finger on it...

A few things look off to me shape-wise/proportionally. The chest panel, the waist, the calves... and I'm not sure what the deal is with those gold details on his helmet.

Maybe it's just an awkward angle, though. I'll reserve judgement until I see more images.

This looks completely different from the figure we got before. No cape, no shield.

I would love to see a line where TF characters turn into SW vehicles, robot representations of SW characters just don't interest me. You could definitely have some kind of Megatron turn into a tie fighter like this, BB be the naboo ships from ep 1, etc.

Oof. Either that is not an angle we had before or the black and white images helped disguise the chest flap. I was on board for the new figure, but now it's looking like a 'pass' for me.

*EDIT*
I went back and compared this new image to the grey prototype figure and the chest flap was present there but it blended in better in the first shot. I also realized just how much the torso looks like a ball balanced on a tiny waist. We haven't gotten a rear view yet, but it kind of looks like the back could have been used for a better torso. Maybe the designers had instructions to keep the ship front on the chest?

I maintain that the Death Star in this line should really have been Palpatine instead of Vader. Brainstorm: half-constructed Death Star II Palpatine figure. That would actually be kind of cool. I don't think there's ever been a toy representation of the second Death Star has there?

Ok... So apparently one of the biggest "issues" people seem to have with this line is that the vehicles change into characters from the movies. I get it and I understand the argument.

That being said... Would it not be bad ass to have a cross-over? We had GI Joe and transformers so why not Star Wars and Transformers?? :-?

The Decepticons teaming up with the Empire... Autobots with the Rebels/Republic... Unicron/Deathstar hybrid... Seeker Tie Fighters (each character being a different one)... Bumblebee as a Y-Wing. 8-)

Having favorite heroes team up across Galaxies... It could be cool.

Ewwww....No. Just no. (And I like Star Wars FYI)

I alwsys failed to understand how these are considered "crossovers" when theres nothing related to the Transformers franchise other than the fact it transforms. Thats the same argument the anti 3rd party crowd used to use so its kind of ironic. Why not give the vehicles respective Autobot snd Decepticon heads that coincide with their rank?

Examples:

Darth Vader Tie Fighter: Megatron
Regular Tie Fighter: Starscream
Slave-1: Soundwave
X-Wing Fighter: Optimus Prime
Millennium Falcon: Ironhide
Snowspeeder: Bumblebee

Then you would have actual Transformers "crossovers" instead of transformable robots with stupid human heads. Just saying...

If I remember correctly, Lucas/Disney gave strict instructions that there couldn't be any compromises in vehicle mode and they have to transform into SW characters.

I guess the SW universe doesn't lend itself well to "contamination" shall we say?

It's his button panel, it isn't supposed to be in his chest it's supposed to be right above his belt. They really made a mistake trying to cram all of his iconic parts into one little flap that can't even sit flat on his chest. Plus the more accurate light gray makes for an even less accurate Vader.

I honestly can't tell if you're agreeing with me or trying to contradict me. Either way, that figure has a longer than accurate torso leaving a larger gap between the panel and the belt than the actual costume(s) had. It certainly wasn't sitting just under his neck in the middle of whatever that fringe is called.

But Transformers is just Star Wars' bitch. We can keep hoping, or not.

Who gives a fuck what they want? They've got entire aisles dedicated to their toys, they shove other lines out of the way every time a movie comes along. They need to learn to share! :-P

I've come to discover that they're like GI Joe fans. They're on an island all their own and don't acknowledge that their part of a larger hobby.
